15:30 - 16:00 Navigating the road ahead: Tackling investment risks during the transition

By Tobias Hekster, Co-CIO, True Partner Capital

Pension funds face a challenging set of investment risks coming into the transition, which creates a near-term event that will have major implications for the future of pensions. Hekster will discuss how portfolios are expected to change, the investment risks funds must navigate, how scenarios impact different age cohorts, and what funds can do to help ensure a smooth transition.

16:00 - 16:30 Illiquid investments in the new pension system

By Carl Kool, Head of Fiduciary Management Nederland, BlackRock

From an economic perspective, illiquid investments, such as mortgages, private equity, infrastructure and private credit, can also play an important role in the portfolio in the new pension contract with a view to achieving returns, diversification, inflation protection and ESG objectives. However, these investments are characterized by a higher degree of illiquidity which poses new challenges for investment policy under SPR and FPR. Kool will discuss in the presentation the rationale for including these asset classes in the portfolio and how to manage liquidity risks.
